RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Refunds of taxes and fees collected unconstitutionally for northern Virginia road projects are on their way back to those who paid them.

Gov. Timothy Kaine March 25 signed a bill passed this year that sets up procedures for returning money collected by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.

Among the refunds:

• The Department of Motor Vehicles will return the 1 percent initial registration fee on new vehicles and the $10 regional registration fee.

• Circuit Court clerks will work to return the grantor’s tax paid on real estate sales.

• The Treasury Department will return the 2 percent levy on car rentals and hotel rooms, the $10 boost in safety inspection fees and the 5 percent sales tax applied to car repairs.
